The Minnesota Timberwolves travel to Portland Saturday to take on the Trail Blazers and Jeff Alexander says that Portland will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Portland –9.5.

Young writes: We have a 4-26 road team against a 22-9 home team here and we won't hesitate to take the home squad. After a rough stretch, the Blazers have started to play some hoops again and the result is a 7-3 ATS record their last 10 games. Portland is 4-1 SU and ATS versus the T-Wolves at home the past 3 seasons and 9-2 ATS in all games the past 3 seasons. Minnesota is 9-20 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record in the 2nd half of the season over the last 2 seasons and 15-28 ATS vs. division opponents over the last 3 seasons. The Blazers have won all 3 meetings this season, including a double digit victory at home. Lay the points here fellas.
